“HEALING AMERICA” MOVEMENT TO VISIT WARREN, PA

Five local companies encourage their employees to hear from world-renowned nutrition researcher, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son, Nelson Campbell

 

Warren, Pennsylvania (May 8, 2018) – PlantPure Inc. announced today that founder Nelson Campbell and his father Dr. T. Colin Campbell, are holding a special event at the Struthers Library Theater on June 24th in Warren, PN, as part of their nationwide Healing America campaign.  Dr. Campbell is considered by many to be the “science father” of the plant-based nutrition movement.  Nelson Campbell directed the film PlantPure Nation and founded PlantPure Inc & the non-profit PlantPure Communities.  Together, the Campbells will deliver an inspiring presentation designed to empower people to act in their own community. 

Five of the county’s largest employers are already participating.  Whirley DrinkWorks, Betts Industries, Northwest Bank, Superior Tire, and Targeted Pet Treats, along with a local organic farm, Crooked Cabin Farm, are providing free vouchers for their employees to attend the event at no charge.

The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is also involved, granting continuing education credits for physicians who attend the event.  Local farmers, plant based organizations and similar entities will be on hand to showcase their wares.  Local restaurants will be open to offer plant-based meals following the presentation.

Later this year, three of the sponsoring organizations (Whirley DrinkWorks, Northwest Bank and Betts Industries), will participate in an employee challenge to demonstrate how easy they can reduce their total cholesterol levels and even their weight with delicious, nutritious foods.

“We want to bring the message of plant-based nutrition to everyone in Warren,” states Nelson Campbell.  “Research shows that a plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and sometimes reverse serious conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some forms of cancer.  A plant-based diet can also help heal the planet through reduced greenhouse gas emissions, create greater economic and governmental stability, and improve animal welfare.”

“It is time that we move to a more expansive model of collaboration,” said Dr. T. Colin Campbell. “We have limited time to make the change we are seeking - that’s why Healing America is recruiting national leaders from plant-based nutrition, healthcare, environmental, animal welfare and social advocacy organizations to further our mission.”

About Healing America

Healing America is the brainchild of Nelson Campbell and was formed to promote the health message of plant-based nutrition, while also demonstrating a larger model for social and political change.  Nelson Campbell is the executive producer, director and co-writer of the documentary film PlantPure Nation, which examines the political and economic factors that suppress information about the benefits of plant-based nutrition, and makes connections to public policy, medical practice, food deserts, and farming.
